Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperatives Union was humbled to host the US Secretary of State Tillerson as a move to appreciate the continuous cooperation that the United states as a major coffee destination for our Yirgacheffe coffee brand, has with YCFCU.

It was all smiles and laughter as Mr. Takele Mammo took Tillerson through the coffee ceremony, a very significant cultural activity that is part of an Ethiopian man, woman or child every single day.

 

This of course signifies that to us, coffee is not just a cash crop or anything that is simply grown and exported; it is culture. Actually, more than half of the produce coffee in Ethiopia is consumed locally. We continue to appreciate our large clientele in the United States of America and we pledge to continue working hand in hand with our consumers to ensure that the demand is met and the required standards maintained.
